Body Contouring with Coolsculpting™
Say Goodbye to Stubborn Fat with Coolsculpting™.
They call it stubborn fat for good reason. It seems like no matter how healthy you eat or how much exercise you get, it can be virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooch. For years you were left with only two options: live with them, or consider invasive surgery. That’s exactly why CoolSculpting™ was developed. Only CoolSculpting™ targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet alone can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively.
Unlike many other procedures, CoolSculpting™ takes very little time and easily fits into your daily life. Most people typically get right back to their busy day after their CoolSculpting™ treatment. Each treatment lasts approximately one hour and for many, appointments can fit into a lunch break.
After one visit, most people typically see a noticeable reduction of fat. It does take a few months to see the full benefits as it takes this long for our bodies to naturally dispose of the fat cells. If your doctor and you determine that additional treatments are necessary, it is possible to lose additional fat with subsequent treatments.
Imagine, after just a few short months, your clothes will fit better and you will look and feel better too. There are no pills or supplements. Maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise will help ensure that your long-term results continue.
Now you can get all the benefits of CoolSculpting™ in half the time. Using CoolSculpting™ to treat two areas at once, you can have twice as much done in a single session. Ask us for more information on CoolSculpting™ and DualSculpting™!
There are many reasons why someone would consider liposuction or liposculpting, more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck. Some have experienced substantial weight loss or multiple pregnancies that have stretched their skin and muscles to a point where they cannot return to their original form. Others may have a healthy diet and consistent exercise regime, yet still experience a protruding abdomen and loose skin. Whatever the reason, a tummy tuck can drastically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen, as well as excess fatty accumulation and folds.
Liposculpting & liposuction are major plastic surgical procedures that are used to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, as well as to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. A secondary benefit of a tummy tuck is a conservative thigh lift, which will further enhance your body image. This procedure does produce a scar, but this scar is hidden within the French bathing suit line.
With liposculpting & liposuction, tummy tuck Vancouver patients can experience a more pleasing figure that includes a flatter and more contoured abdomen. This type of plastic surgery can also be combined with Coolsculpting ™ on the front and back in order to sculpt the body aesthetically and thereby provide better results.
Dr. Rai also uses the power assisted liposuction (PAL) technique for contouring the body smoothly. The PAL technique is considered a more gentle approach because it involves using a suction tube that vibrates to loosen the fat cells. Advantages of this approach include less swelling and bruising, as well as a quicker recovery time. Regular liposuction is also performed in some areas of the face and for body contouring surgery.
